  • Lissa Schneckenburger and Liz Simmons in Concert

    Thu Apr 25th 7:00 EDT - Folk, World

    “Schneckenburger’s playing is… quietly virtuosic…her voice is pure and clear, full of simple emotion…” All Music Guide “World class fiddler …. far from just offering one dance tune after another, simple settings allow the true beauty of the music to shine through.” Sing Out The traditional music of New England can be as warm and comforting as a winter fire or as potent and exhilarating as a summer thunderstorm. Fiddler and singer Lissa Schneckenburger is a master of both moods, a winsome, sweet-voiced singer who brings new life to old ballads and a skillful, dynamic fiddler who captures the driving rhythm and carefree joy of dance tunes old and new. Raised in a small town in Maine and now living in Vermont, Lissa grew up with music. She began playing fiddle at the age of six, inspired by her mother's interest in folk music and a family friend who was a professional violinist. Soon she was studying with influential Maine fiddler Greg Boardman and sitting in with the Maine Country Dance Orchestra. By the time she was in high school she was playing concerts on her own, specializing in the sprightly New England dance tunes that combine influences from the British Isles and Quebec with homegrown twists that have been evolving since Colonial days. Another of her major influences was the diverse musical community that she found at fiddle camps, where she had a chance to play with and learn from a wide variety of musicians including noted Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser. In 2001 she graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a degree in contemporary improvisation, and since then has been performing around the US and internationally for a growing audience of enthusiastic listeners. She has recorded eight CDs, (five solo and three with various groups). Lissa's fiddling is uplifting and lively, and her singing is gentle and evocative. Both in concert and in the studio she is regularly accompanied by some of New England's best musicians, including guitarist Bethany Waickman and piano accordion player Jeremiah McLane. Recently she has turned over a new leaf with "Covers", a recording released in June 2013, which as the name suggests, is a mix of reinterpreted pop songs from the 1950s to today. Co produced with Aoife O'Donovan (of Crooked Still and The Goat Rodeo Sessions), Lissa's sixth solo album reinterprets beloved classics by artists like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Nelly, Weezer, The Magnetic Fields, Dire Straits, and many more. Lissa explained, "To me, folk music is anything that creates a feeling of community. Music that people want to sing along to, dance to, fall in love to…. music that brings people together. These songs are part of all of us, and it's an honor to have had the chance to record them". Whether playing interpretations of music old or new, Lissa brings to the stage enthusiasm, energy, and the bright future of New England’s musical traditions.

  • EVA is an American Singer/Songwriter living in Germany. Her 6th CD "A to Z through Germany" was inspired by her idea to travel to smaller towns alphabetically and just share her songs on the streets. It was an adventure and an opportunity to “leave the comfort zone”. The EP is a collection of stories and self reflection, of adventure and simple acts of human kindness. EVA was determined to enter a land of unpredictability and see what treasures could be discovered, and she did just that. Moved by people’s gestures and reactions, she started writing songs about her experiences. Stories from “gloves” to “raspberry tea” and “no regrets” were born. Her live performance of the songs will be accompanied by experimental illustrations of various artists from the HTK in Hamburg who created works inspired by these songs. They will be projected onto the stage during the live performance to enhance the whole experience. So join her "live" with the band in the Hebebühne!!

  • Powderbears Presents Simon Chrisman and Wes Corbett

    Fri May 10th 10:30 EDT - Folk, Country

    A continuing concert series, organized by retired ski patroller and Powder skier from Bear Valley, Phil Davis. We have presented concerts for over 25 years, and in the past few years, on a much more regular basis, thanks to my friends at the Big Sur and Shasta Fiddle Camps. Our Log Cabin Venue is snowbound during winter months, and is enjoyed by visiting ski groups and families mostly on weekends. So while most of our shows will take place on weeknights, we are also working with other possible venues in Bear Valley, to present artists on Weekends when possible. On April 14 we present Luminance Ensemble at Casa Verde. RSVP for address at 415 779 2093 or rsvpcasaverde@gmail.com , if you plan to attend, or tune in here on Concert Window. Promoter Phil Davis is a retired ski patroller in Bear Valley, California with the nickname “Powderbear” due to the snowy conditions in which he works. Back in 1980, Phil and two friends bought a remote log cabin in the Bear Valley ski area with the intention of turning it into a cross country ski lodge. It wasn’t located near the roads; as Phil says, “I had the snow cat to get guests in, and pack a trail to the cabin.” The lodge was used as a base for a helicopter skiing operation for a few years, and then a new idea emerged. “Some of my Strawberry Music Festival Friends convinced me late one night that we should put together a gig at my Log Cabin. So our first gig was with a band they had at the time, called ‘Horse Opry,’ and it was a benefit for the local school, to send the kids on a field trip to Washington DC that next summer. Then a few years later, I met the Violin Voyager, Kim Angelis and her husband Josef, and we did a couple of house concerts with them in the next several years. It was very occasional at first.” Through a chance one-off concert with Australian band The Waifs, and then the friendly prodding of fiddler Tashina Clarridge, Phil began hosting regular concerts at the Log Cabin. In recent years he has hosted Aoife O’Donovan, The Deadly Gentlemen, Phoebe Hunt, Haas Kowert & Tice, and the 10 String Symphony, among others. Since finding a way to bring satellite internet out to the Log Cabin, Phil has recently entered the new domain of webcasting his shows. “Concert Window,” he says, “is a wonderful project that provides not only promotion of concerts, but also a funding source to help these projects stay alive. Every ticket sold on Concert Window is vote for live music. If there is a space, and you have musicians who are willing to play in your space, go for it!” If you’re interested in visiting the cabin, better pack your skis. According to Phil, “it can be reached both by downhill or cross country skis, but not by car (for 6 months of winter). The roads are packed and groomed in Bear Valley, and our cabin is located on a very private trail, about 5 minutes ski, or walk, from the nearest ‘groomed road.’ For first time non skiing guests, and for musicians and equipment, we can transport you via snowmobile and cargo sled to the cabin. Once you know where it is, it's a pleasant walk, and in moonlight, it is a piece of pure magic.” We appreciate the support of those who know the magic of live music. Please come, or tune in online and contribute what you can to help this project support live music and touring musicians.
